June 1, 2007 marked the first birthday for the BBN Bible Institute and we have seen God truly bless this arm of the BBN ministry. After beginning the English BI in June 2006, we then added Chinese BI in January 2007 and also the Spanish BI in March 2007. Each language group has enjoyed tremendous growth.
The entire BBN staff celebrated the occasion on Friday afternoon by thanking the Lord for His blessings and then singing "To God Be The Glory." A delicious birthday cake was also served to all who attended.
Below are some stats for your information:
The English BI had 12,375 registrations during the first year of operation. Students have signed up from over 80 countries around the world.
Overall totals for all language groups from the beginning of BI through May 31, 2007 are English 12,375; Chinese 3,992; and Spanish 6,886. Grand total is 23,253. ( an average of almost 2,000 students registering each month during these first 12 months.)
In the month of May 2007 the language group totals for student enrollment were English 778; Chinese 806; and Spanish 1328. The grand total for May was 2912 students enrolled.
YTD ( 2007) totals for new students – English 3858; Chinese 3992; Spanish 6886. Grand total YTD is 14,736
To God Be The Glory Great Things He Has Done!
If the Lord sees fit to continue to bless the Bible Institute over the next six months, we could see over 35,000 people enrolled by the end of 2007.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support during this great time of ministry. I trust that if you have not done so already that you will enroll soon and study God’s Word with us. There are now more than 185 courses available in the three languages all together!!
